I created this assessment to be paired with the Junior Great Book curriculum and the classic story- The Ugly Duckling.
This three page assessment includes a variety of question types and question stems.
6 multiple choice questions that assess the following skills: cause and effect relationships, author's purpose. identifying the main idea, making an inference, and sequencing.
4 unknown word/context clues questions.
5 short answer questions that require students to reference the text and include evidence regarding the main idea, theme, etc.
I've included an answer key for your convenience.
I hope you find this useful!
